Your welds are very nice. Can you give some details on you welding technique. What motion are you using, cursive e, u?

Normally just close my eyes and hope for the best!

Prefer to pull for better penetration with gun pointed back about 15deg and do cursive e with spending little time on the leading portion and slow on the back of the weld. This is with .030 wire and wire speed set fairly slow. Same as anything, the prep work has so much to play in it too. Wire brush or scotch brite and acetone.

What was your reasoning for chopping the rear floor? I'm hoping i won't have to so I can fit custom made fuel cell right underneath.

I am raising the floor for suspension link clearance, and to tuck a fuel cell underneath. Since itís a tube chassis, I wonít have the thickness of a frame rail hanging down, so I wanted to tuck the tank up high. Rear floor pan is built and should be going in soon. Then to do the fenders to help clear the 42ís. The tailgate will also get thickened to match the floor level.

I'm building a similar rig tube chassis scrambler. 42's I may build my own cell and use the new Hydromat stuff Holley has!

Nice. Iíve been looking at that or some snowmobile pickups for mine. I built a cell on my last one, and it was a pain in the ass. I may just have Boyd do this one.

I saw the snowmobile pickups very interesting.. a lot cheaper..! I'm pretty handy with my rig and aluminum so I may just do it to kill time and say I did it!

Got the raised rear floor pan bent and bead rolled from some 16ga. The HF brake needed some beefing up, but handled the task well. I had some aftermarket inner fenders, but they are garbage and donít fit, so I will be building some next.

Floor came out great. Looks like a factory piece.

Rear fenders are done. Major body work is about finished and time to start on the chassis. Just picked up 300í of tubing to get me started. Also picked up a Notchmaster to replace my old worn out eBay special.

You'll love that notch master. I just replaced the bearing block and shaft on mine after a decade. Replacement parts when you do need them are cheap.

Good to hear. Between that and the options Swag has for them I thought it was a good choice.

Finished up the tailgate. I wanted classic CJ look with modern functionality and to work with the raised floor. All remade and bead rolled from 16ga. Hinged the interior panel that is held shit by two dzus fasteners for storage. Has bearclaw latches and a locking push button release. All in All pretty happy.

Body is off the table, lots of finishing to do on it still, but starting on the chassis now. Havenít been able to carve out much time for this lately with kids and work, but hoping to get rocking on it more soon.

Awesome work. The storage idea is really smart, might as well make use of the room.

Iíve been real lazy on updates. Subframe and body are mounted. Need to redo quite a bit of sheet metal that got cut away for clearance. Main frame structure is in, lots of bracing and shock mounts to add. Main rails and bumpers are .188 and the remainder is .120. Trusses are done, and parts keep trickling in.

Great progress.

I hate filters that mount upside down or even sideways. Just makes a mess.
